Two men are sitting opposite each other in a railway

compartment. The younger of the two asks his companion if

he has the time. There is no answer. Again and again he asks

but gets no reply. Eventually the man taps him on the knee

and shouts, “Do you have the time please?”

“Yes, it’s half past three,” replies the older man.

“Thank you, but why did you take so long to answer?”

“Well, it’s like this. Once I’d told you the time, we’d get

talking, become friends, find we had something in common

… then I’d invite you to visit us, you’d meet our beautiful

daughter, fall in love with her and want to get married. And

to be honest with you, I don’t want to have son-in-law who

hasn’t even got a watch.”
